News and Current Events

Dance Saskatchewan is calling for proposals from its members to develop and direct one of 5 performance events known as the ‘Dance on the Saskatchewan Series’. In the past there have been a variety of themes that included a musical theatre night, multicultural themes, a dance party and a performance by emerging and professional dancers.

There is an expectation that proposal will reflect the strategic priorities of Dance Saskatchewan. By example, the proposal may include responding to the ‘Calls to Action’, collaborative work that is inclusive of the varied and diverse membership, incorporate opportunity for audience engagement in pre or post performance activity, and is inclusive of the dance community from outside of Saskatoon.

Dance Saskatchewan Inc. joins provincial dance organizations all across the country in the celebration of International Dance Day - April 29th, 2018. Performance Groups of all ages and genres are invited to participate.
